big robot smash 'em big time

Scary-ass 'Gladiator' riot-supressing robot: link one, link two. Could be available around 2007. What really scares me is the 'scenario' in link one..

"The Camp Smith demonstration of the Gladiator was based on a scenario in which an angry mob of 600 activists in a desert city refuses to disperse.

Some individuals are armed with AK-47 machine guns and rocket-propelled grenades, and the mob as a whole is between the Marines and friendlies needing aid."


I dunno about you, but the first thing that popped into my head was Iraq and other various middle-eastern countries.

It's meant to carry smoke and flashbang grenades, but in link one they also talk about it being able to equip M249s, M240Gs, Uzi 9mms and APOBS.

Eek. Scary.

The first thing that pops into my head is that this, combined with the increasing success of the anti-gun crowd, means that this country will never again see a document starting "When in the course of human events ...", even if the circumstances desperately warrant it.
